Teaching Information Fluency


A year ago Dennis and I were contacted by Scarecrow Press to write a book based on the materials and understanding on our website, The result of the collaboration is a guide to embedding information fluency instruction into mainstream courses--chiefly middle school and high school.

The chapters include dozens of internet search challenge examples, including a whole chapter analyzing, one of our favorite Virgil Wong sites, plus evaluations of the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus, the Harry Potter Sorting Hat Personality Test, and much more. The appendix can be used as a guide to creating mini lessons for instruction that reinforces Common Core Language Arts Standards while teaching valuable digital research skills.
